The Haunted Pillar, 5th and Broad Street, Augusta, Georgia, USA

A farmer’s market once stood here in the 1800s. Legend says a street preacher, who had been banned from preaching in front of the market, swore the building would one day be destroyed by great winds. This would leave only one pillar standing. To make things eerier, he said anyone that touched the pillar would die. As it happened the market was, indeed, destroyed by a tornado, leaving nothing but the pillar. The pillar was destroyed in December 2016 by a car crash, but it will be rebuilt.
